    Irish talks to avoid government meltdown.

    Irish talks continue as deadline looms to avoid government meltdown

    Talks between Ireland's two main parties will continue on Monday in a bid to a resolve a political crisis that has pushed the country's government towards collapse.

    If Fine Gael Taoiseach Leo Varadkar fails to end the stand-off with main opposition party Fianna Fail by Tuesday, a snap pre-Christmas election looms.

    Mr Varadkar and Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin held talks over the weekend to try to avert a government meltdown at a time when ministers are preparing for December's crunch EU summit, when the fate of the Irish border post-Brexit could effectively be determined.

    Theresa May does not need any more worries, as she has enough worry about how we are going to get out of Europe without crashing out.

    The unholy deal she made with the DUP in order to stay in power is going to come back to haunt her as the future of the Irish border starts to become a battle-ground.

    Actually Paps, I think that this is two completely separate subjects.
    The trouble with the Irish government is completely internal and it has little or no bearing on what might happen at the border between the North and the South.

    Eventually the internal problems in the Irish government are going to show themselves when they come to sort out the border between the North and South, after and during Brexit.

    This IS going to be a very large stumbling block against the progress of the negotiations.

    And the thing is that there are no easy answers to this problem, as once we are finally out of the EU the border between North and South Ireland will become an easy crossing point into the UK for both illegal and legal immigrants from the European Eastern Bloc.

    Yes, a wide open trade border between the South of Ireland and the North will be a gift for the people-traffickers who move many people at a time in closed lorries and containers.

    THIS is going to have to be dealt with first and foremost.
